    Right - I understand completely and agree with you about my expectations - they weren't out of line. I think I won't say anything, but I certainly won't recommend them or give them a rating on this website. I just feel like I don't want to put the negative energy out there, as silly as that sounds. Ugh sooo disappointing because every other transaction from backyardchickens has been wonderful.

    MA moma Have you ever raised frizzles before ? They look so cute but check out the posts on the contest of the worst chicken molts. Some frizzles get almost totally "neked" ie their molt is severe.

    And on another note, I have some nice birds from BYC hatching eggs. Most were packaged well, but lately they have been total failures even when I have had a more experienced person add them to her batches. A while back one dozen of blue eggs hatched out a pair of birds from a breed that makes white or cream colored eggs. I agree with you on your decision. Just do what you do.

    Obviously one of the hatched was not a turken. Not sure what she/he is yet. :)
